Not your everyday sight in Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour. A giant 16.5 meter (54 feet) inflatable duck, creatively called 'Rubber Duck' sails into town on Thursday.
The duck added a surreal touch to the city's iconic skyline. No doubt those in the Central financial district found time in their busy days to post countless photos to social media taken from their high office perches.
The duck has visited 12 cities around the world, including Osaka, Sydney, Sao Paolo and Amsterdam.
The duck is the product of Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman. Hofman first conceived the idea in 2001. "It makes you feel young again," Hofman says of the duck.
The duck "refers to your childhood when there was no stress or economic pressure, no worry about having to pay the rent," says Hofman.
The duck is about six stories tall. It is hollow and air pumps work non-stop to keep the duck's shape. Three huge anchors will hold the duck in place in the harbor.
The duck is on show at Tsim Sha Tsui, beside the Ocean Terminal, Harbour City, until June 9.
After Hong Kong, the duck will head to the United States, though exactly where won't be revealed until about a week before floatation.
